IPEI Grant Programs Continue to Engage Students

 

A recent report confirms what educators and community members have long believed: Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) grants programs positively impact the engagement of students in the Ithaca City School District (ICSD).

In 2014-15, ICSD teachers who received an IPEI Teacher Grant, Red and Gold Grant, or Community Collaboration Grant reported that their students' engagement levels increased after participating in grant-funded activities. The growth in engagement was particularly significant among students identified by teachers as performing below grade-level expectations. These findings are consistent with data collected by grant recipients during the previous two school years.

Pet of the Week

by Ashley Fleming

Duncan Hello! I'm Duncan, and I'm looking for a quiet home with gentle people. I get a little overwhelmed by lots of new people and places, but once I know you, I'll show you my silly side. I love scratches, cuddling, and already know a few basic tricks. I'm housebroken and don't chew anything except my toys, but I still like to have my crate to nap in and be my "safe zone." I bounce around like a puppy when you get the leash to take me for a walk. Because I am easily startled, a family with teenagers or an adult-only home would be my preference. A yard where I can run around with you would be wonderful too! I'm nervous with dogs I don't know, but I might be okay with a calm dog who will give me time to work up my courage. Do I sound like a good match for you?
